Wow...such bed head!

He woke up from his nap sweaty and tousled.  He had drawn his blankie up over his head while sleeping and this is what we got.  Yikes.

Go Long!

Just a little game of flag football being played.  He didn't understand the rules but didn't mind being tackled if it involved tickling as well.

He's calling the shots now.

Camden is in charge of what toys to play with and how they get played.  I'm sure he's thinking, 'Finally, no more Disney Princess games!  and no more tutus!' since his older cousin is now in pre-school.  It will be all trucks and balls and dirt, I guess.

His little grin

I just love his little gap toothed grin!!  Reminds me so much of his Mama when she was this little.

Ritz Crackers

I'm not a huge fan of crackers.  I can take 'em or leave 'em.  Ritz Crackers is, however, a favorite of the kids.  (and certain pregnant mommies too!)

The Pied Piper

If Camden's cousin Sammy is around you can bet that they will be running full tilt for most of the time.

Doubting Thomas

Hmm....wonder if I could grab that cracker from Olivia without her noticing?

At the auction

It's been the event of the year here in town:  Hot August Nights and Daddy loves it!  They took Camden to the car auction and you can tell that he is paying strict attention to what is going on.

Get out from there!

Any time that I don't see Camden but hear the bonk of glass rattling, I can be sure to find him crawling through this coffee table.

I don't know why...

but I think this little Mohawk on Camden looks pretty cute.  I don't care for Mohawks on anyone but I've always done this to babies.  It's been more of a Cupie Doll look rather than Mohawk but if the shoe fits...

What language is this?

Camden has begun speaking in complete sentences...paragraphs!  He uses question marks, exclamation marks and commas when talking.  He just goes on and on.  I'm pretty sure he's speaking Cherokee.

The new toy

We got the kids a new toy to play with this summer.  I had seen it at the home of a little girl I've never met in Oklahoma (Hi, Joselyn!)  It appeared in a blog that Camden's-never-met-but-was-born-one-day-before-me friend Parker played with.  I thought what a great idea this little water park would be!  Camden helped Papa put it together...he actually supervised the construction and was very excited that water got to be added to this new toy!

Foot in Mouth Awards goes to.....

While driving back to camp, Papa and I sat in the back with our little guy here.  He was our captive audience and Papa went crazy taking pictures of him.

Camp Cluster takes a bike ride

While all the grown women folk went for their spa day, the Daddys decided to take all the kids for a bike ride.  Last year, we could have fit one more kid in here because these two were still pretty tiny.  But now?  Barely room for them!

A quandry

Much like Goldilocks and the Three Bears, this bike is too big....

It's that time

Yes, Camden is only 18 months old.  And yes, that's Papa buying him a fishing pole.  At this age, Camden would prefer to play with the packaging instead of the pole, but Papa wants to be prepared for next year!

This is the easiest way to see Yellowstone...on Daddy's shoulders!

Story time

One evening Daddy sat back in the bedroom of our motorhome and read to the three kids.  Camden was entranced with the hunting book Daddy read to them.  It had lots of pictures of doggies!

It's a steal!

What else do you do when you're in Jackson, Wyoming?  You try on snow suits!!  Camden snagged himself a brand new snow suit for this upcoming winter.  Yea, Camden...time to go snowmobiling!

Shopping time!

A very important stop in our time in Jackson proper, is a stop at Jack Dennis Fly shop.  Here Daddy and Camden examine the minutea of fly fishing flies.   Camden was not impressed because he couldn't put them in his mouth.

Later on..

I will post later today as we are on the road to home.

On our way for ice cream

If you mention West Yellowstone to our family, they all think of the best ice cream around.  It is in a little store on main street and is usually so packed with people that you have to wait about 20 minutes for your order.  While you stand out on the street.  Everyone got ice cream except me (don't care for it) and this little guy.  He doesn't care for it at this point either.  But we had fun watching everyone else slurp up their after dinner treats.

While the rest of us were waiting for our lunches to arrive, Camden went wild over his peach.  He got juice all over his face and dripped down his chin.

The Bear Chair

A quick, very quick, shot of all the kids in the bear chair.  Please don't pitch forward Olivia!

Busy little guy

Camden loved running (yes, running) everywhere here at the Discovery Center.  Had to keep a close eye on him because he's fast now.

Fat puppy

This little puppy is named Annie.  She is 11 weeks old and probably outweighs Camden.  We met her as we were getting ready to leave to go see lions and tigers and bears, oh my.
